“[Nash] ignites the page with passion.”
—Julia Quinn

Set the hit comedy, The Hangover, in England’s Regency Era and what do you get?  Between the Duke and the Deep Blue Sea, the first book in RITA Award-winner Sophia Nash’s wickedly clever and wonderfully sensual Royal Entourage series. The author of Secrets of a Scandalous Bride, which was named by Booklist as one of the “Top Ten Romances of the Year,” Nash delights readers once again by following the romantic exploits of the rogues of the royal entourage after a night of unheralded, and mostly unremembered, extravagance. Karen Hawkins, Elizabeth Boyle, and Victoria Alexander fans will be thrilled with this tantalizing tale of a duke exiled from London for certain undukelike behavior he cannot recall who stumbles into even more trouble when he is instantly captivated by an imperiled beauty he discovers hanging off of a cliff.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 19, 2012 – In the first of Nash's Royal Entourage novels, Alexander Barclay, the Duke of Kress, must atone for outrageous behavior at a bachelor party (at which he blacked out) by abiding by the wishes of the Prince Regent. Alex must return to his estate at St. Michael's Mount in Cornwall and choose a wife within a month's time, but he is derailed on his journey when he rescues a young woman hanging onto the side of a cliff. Roxanne Vanderhaven, Countess of Paxton and damsel in distress, relies on Alex's charity as she leaves behind her former life and husband, since he abandoned her on the escarpment's face. As a parade of eligible young misses arrives at the Mount, Roxanne's jealousy flairs up. As she tries to thwart Alex's matrimonial plans and elude her husband, Roxanne's antics add humor to this enchanting Regency romance. As Alex's thoughtful deeds reveal his genuine ardor for Roxanne, he is transformed from the ne'er do well bachelor into a man worthy of the love and trust of Roxanne. Readers will look forward to what Nash (Secrets of a Scandalous Bride) has in store for the other dukes in this engaging series.

Customer Reviews


I really loved this book. I have been an avid reader for the last decade or so but haven't found the time in the past year to sit and enjoy a novel. Boy did I enjoy this one. I saw a reference to this book in a magazine and figured now was as good a time as any. I have never read Sophia Nash before but guarantee I will again. I was hooked very quickly and read the book within the first 12 hours. It is a lovely story with charm and wit as well as a bit of danger and suspense. Ms. Nash brings you to where the characters are. Her descriptions and details are just the perfect amount to help you create the characters and places in your mind. The anticipation she creates for the love scenes made my pulse quicken. I have already read another of her books "The Kiss" which was just as wonderful. I do believe some of her books are written in a specific order. It may be worth looking into and starting from the beginning. This is my first time writing a review so I certainly hope it is helpful. Money well spent.
